So as we slug away day after day trying to get our company off the ground, we are also simultaneously getting all of our paper work squared away. There's something romantic about being an entrepreneur, but when you are a business owner you find out that what it mostly is, is paperwork. However, today we finally got our paperwork filled out and all of the papers are signed.
Just to give you a little insight on how we got to where we are today. We started as a fully remote team spread across the country to now being in one office in Atlanta with me, my brother, a team of 5 incredibly talented 3D artists. We do have 2 invaluable remote members of our original team, but we're hoping as we scan more and more amazing places in Atlanta, they will be tempted to move here.
We've been through dozens of names, some of them really terrible (one was Jubilee, yikes!) before deciding on preParti, and we've talked and argued about hundreds of decisions about the app and the business. We are invested even more than we ever were, and we know our app and our business will become better and better everyday.
